Looking forward to this, best of luck to everyone!
Only have one bot to enter at the moment, but maybe more in the future if it's not full by the time I complete another bot.

I've already PM'd you an entry. I'd like to reserve a 2nd spot here. I have something in the making that's taking a good bit more effort as I'm learning the bot building art of this game.

I have no idea what the first rule even means there. What's wrong with wheels then?

If a spinner takes enough damage in RR2, then the entire weapon just falls of and starts sliding across the arena. However, if you attach a wheel to the motor first and then attach a weapon to the wheel, the spinner becomes invincible, gets rid of the blur, and makes the spinner faster.
Stuff I somehow succeeded in:

Sounds a bit like cheating if you ask me, but guess I'll fix up Phantasm later today before sending it in.

I'm all for the weapons not falling off ect, my issue with the wheel fix on weapons however is the fact once this is in effect it no longer classes it as a weapon and instead as a wheel. After a while of battle, once a robot deals a hit with it's spinner the robot itself is dealt damage rather than the opposing robot.

I just feel like from here this would be easily exploited by having robots with static weapons beating those with spinning weapons (which lets be honest, it would be very rare for a static weapon to beat a spinner).

That's just my two cents on the topic though.

Well, this seems like the perfect time to shill my brand new, complete motorised weapon AI: HAMMER.
Grab it from here: HAMMER AI V1.0 and enjoy!

Any questions or issues just drop me a message on discord.

Yeah, it seems like bots having wheel fix die much faster because of the damage from themselves.

Well in parsec rumble, this is taken to consideration, and if a bot does kill itself it goes to the judges. However in this game, i dont think that that is a good idea

Plus lets face it, the aspect of losing a primary weapon does add some extra excitement xD

After Season 1, I don't feel like it is so much '2 hits and they fall off', there was quite a good while of fighting with weapons still on!

I've sent in Phantasm with the wheel fix, but in testing it in the test area I found it more prone to have the weapon glitching through the floor/wall and the bot getting stuck.
Should the rule on needing wheel fix to enter get reversed, then I know I'll want my bots without it.

... Weren't you the one that was pissed off about me being anti-Wheelfix?
Well, uhh... I guess Imma post a survey to see if either Wheelfix is required or banned. Either way, Flippers and Hammers require it regardless of the result. Vote ends on the 20th.

With WHEELS. I'm all for the wheel fix being used on actual wheels, not on weapons.

Wheels are allowed to use the wheelfix, don't worry. I mean, except for bots like HUGE and Gabriel.
